  62. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  63. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  64. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.

  69. 2020 Friday G:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  70. 2020 Friday H: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [ix]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 403,498 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 580 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xv]    Let us look at one other North Carolina: $3.008.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Netherlands: $8.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,831,207,808,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.

  79. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day- Like many of my colleagues, My contention is the United Nations no longer possesses any relevancy what with the ongoing war in the Ukraine and the atrocities Russian and Russian mercs are committing there.[xviii]  While I understand that Russia can veto any resolution merely because of their presence on the U.N. Security Council, one would think that the UN Secretary-General would be hitting them every day with demands to cease, desist, and to evacuate that war-torn land.  As with most things, the creators of the U.N. somehow did not envision the possibility that one of the five permanent members would begin an illegal and unjustified war and yet it has happened at least twice now: George W. Bush’s criminal invasion of Iraq and now Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.  BOTH of these men should be tried in the Hague and both these men should be given lengthy prison sentences.  I would hope that the next president- the rightful president– uncovers a way through which we can rectify this glaring mistake.  We know the current lump of aged flesh in the Oval Office will do nothing other than to commit billions and billions of borrowed Chi-Com monies to the fight AFTER he and his corrupt family skim off copious amounts of cash.  I’m not saying anything everyone does not know, okay?  The Biden regime and family are as corrupt as they come.  It is what it is.  Let’s sweep the November midterms and let us march forward as a unified people.  See you in six months- let us hope things are better than they are now.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0970 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Magic.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 12, 1998, Cheap Trick released the full edition of their first live album, “Live at Budokan,”- “Live at Budokan- the Complete Concert.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope that when President Trump returns to the White House that he and a unified GOP will deport the United Nations out of New York City and send it to Beijing where it’s better suited.  Get the U.N. out of the U.S. NOW.

  72. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Folks, GOP registrations in Hawaii are off the charts.  A shift began in 2020 and it continues to this day.  Whereas we were a reliable BLUE state, voters here have grown tired being represented by Democrats.  The Biden administration ships its illegal aliens knowing that the Aloha Spirit would provide sustenance for the newcomers.  Well, we are tired of them draining inadequate resources, we are tired of them robbing, raping, and even murdering our fellow citizens.  We have seen jobs disappear thanks to the Chi-Vi; we have seen already high housing costs go up even higher.  We are tired of seeing our fellow citizens living on the streets while government gives illegal aliens handouts.  The cost of power continues to rise as do the prices of already scarce groceries.  We are going to elect Bob McDermott to replace Senator Brian E. Schatz.  We are going to reclaim our House seats.  The time is coming for a massive momentum shift and this Election Day, we are confident we will see one that will restore the 50th state to the RED column for the first time since we became a state.  We want to send all the illegal aliens in our state back to the mainland, preferably to Sacramento, California, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, along with the homeless the mainland has sent us.  Stay tuned.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0964 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Joe Bob’s Birthday.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Another independent label repackaged a bunch of Cheap Trick tunes on October 15, 1992, and released the delightful, “Voices.”  This album gathered some more of the crème de la crème of this hard-rocking American band and thus we have the following setlist: (1) “Ain’t that a Shame” (2) “Voices” (3) “You’re All Talk” (4) “Hot Love” (5) “She’s Tight” (6) “Tonight It’s You” (7) “Dancing the Night Away” (8) “Takin’ Me Back” and (9) “Taxman, Mr. Thief.”  Again, this is an excellent compilation album and combined with yesterday’s “The Greatest Hits,” what more can one say or ask?  We hope you seek this one out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

  61. 2020 Friday A: Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s highly likely we will see a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Chinese Virus Crisis sometime in October or November. Speaking of the Wuhan Waltz, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is pulling back from saying he would impose a national mask mandate. Poor old Joe, he has no clue what he is saying on any given day. When is someone going to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse? Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Howie Kurtz on Fox News Channel noted that last night’s CNN ‘Town Hall’ with the former VP and Anderson Cooper was not even softball, that it was akin to “T-Ball,” noting that Trump received all manner of hateful questions in his earlier in the week while everyone treated Senile Old Joe with kid gloves.

[xii]    Let us look at one other Idaho: $3.772.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- San Marino: $6.966 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,776,931,097,401 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 177 for the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 84 since her sole visit to the El Paso Sector for a photo op.  Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by OAN today regarding the illegal alien crisis.  First, here is the cost for just this day- Saturday, September 18, 2021– $579,642,432.  Imagine all that money put to beneficial use such as helping homeless vets, the drug addicted, even American urban outdoorsmen.  Imagine what that could do for AMERICANS instead of the Third World’s detritus.  Wow.  Next, here is the amount of taxpayer money wasted on caring for the illegal alien invaders for the calendar year 2021: $285,511,221,248.  Third, here is the appalling TRUE number of illegals who have flowed across the southern border this year: 2,926,261.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in the country, a number we believe is FAR TOO LOW: 36,926,260. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Saturday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– After demanding that ALL employees submit to Joe Biden’s illegal mandate of getting the Chi-Com vaccine or else, 125 employees at Indiana University walk off the job.  Good for you.  When this winds its way through the courts, everyone who has lost their job will be paid for every single hour they have been off the job.   We have seen this before as people wrongly terminated in the professional foodservice industry or who are forced off the job- wrongly- can get some stunning payouts that can, on occasion, bankrupt a business.  Joe Biden- careful with those mandates because the American people love FREEDOM.

  76. 2022 Sunday: F**king Joe Biden might not be as senile as many believe.  Earlier this week, the man who showered with his young daughter now wants to send BILLIONS of nonexistent dollars into a ‘cancer moonshot’ much like President John Fitzgerald Kennedy launched the program to put Americans on the moon.  Every single time we hear that slobbering, minor-attracted individual announces plans to send billions of dollars into the Ukraine, into monkeypox mass vaccinations, into forcing every American to join a labor union, or into fighting cancer, the question is this: HOW BIG is the percentage going into the pockets of the BIG GUY?  Joe Biden is not doing any of this because of altruism; no, he is doing it because he knows how to skim money off the top and to then divert it into the coffers of his corrupt family.  The man is a criminal, a possible felon, not just for his creepy fondling of young girls and his sniffing of women’s hair and his groping of their behinds, but because he has become a master criminal that dwarfs the criminality of anyone else in elective office, even that of Mitch McConnell.  Let us not forget that “Cocaine Mitch’s” father-in-law was sending South American cocaine to Europe via his shipping company’s fleet of vessels which is why the Turtle has the moniker that he does.  We must neuter this man’s ‘presidency’ just as we must neuter the Democrats’ hopes of toppling our constitution-based representational republic which is NOT a democracy.  Friends, let me know what you think this week, I thank you for joining me each day and will see you again in six months.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was a disappointment to many in that the band was evolving and had changed producers. “All Shook Up” came out on October 24, 1980 and spawned no big radio hits which was unexpected. Longtime producer Tom Werman was out, and Beatles producer George Martin was in.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion) although following the release, bassist Petersson would leave the group due to overwork.  The band was on the road around the clock- doing at least 300 shows per year and recording albums in between.  This album would not receive the same praise or achieve the same sales as its predecessor, “Dream Police.”  Still, as completists, we must own every shred of music produced by a favorite band.  Seek it out and enjoy, we think you will be glad you did.

Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, tells Dana Bash, aka Old Horse Face, that “Donald Trump is fanning the flames of violence.”  Hmmm…
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe informs Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel that although ‘Russia remains a problem, the real threat emanates from communist China,’ land of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The fact that the Democrats continue dismissing the threat of communist China while constantly braying about ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ as the imminent threat tells observant readers and contributors that what the Democrats claim others are doing is what they, themselves, are guilty of doing which means the Dems are colluding with the Chi-Coms to defeat Donald Trump and to deliver the United States into the hands of Chairman Xi.  Next, in the United States, we have arrived at a startling statistic: so far this year, 37 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and another 700 injured. 
  60. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 337,689 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 66,419 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]        
  66. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.398 per gallon, $2.943 in Florida, $4.070 in Hawaii, and $3.902 in Washington state. [xv] Let us look at one other location- Vermont: $3.086.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Latvia: $5.918 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,703,407,487,861 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  67. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The White House reports that within the past 24 hours, the U.S. military has been able to evacuate 1.2 thousand people.  Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st CD told Newsmax that ‘it’s likely the Pentagon had more than a head’s up on last Thursday’s ISIS-K suicide bombing at the Kabul airport.’  Speaking of this disaster, increasing numbers of Democrats are beginning to turn their backs on the usurper in the White House over his sheer stupidity in dealing with Afghanistan.  Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of the American people rate Joe Biden’s Afghan performance as POOR.   Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th CD, says the ‘evacuation mission must be extended.’  Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd CD, told Newsmax today that the ’U.S. is cowering to the Taliban following the terror group’s demands that the United States adheres to its deadline for their withdrawal.’  Prior to the commander in charge- General Austin S. Miller- proclaiming the ‘war is over’ in Afghanistan, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, said, ‘it’s unclear if we will get all Americans out of the POS country.’  According to the general, we won’t.  The Pentagon says that the last U.S. military aircraft have left Afghanistan and that the war is now ‘over.’
  68. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, folks.  As much as it upsets our stomach to continually point out the deficiencies of the loser some claim is the ‘vice president,’ we are compelled to do it anyway.  Today is Day No. 159 since Joe Biden made “Kooky Kamala” Harris the so-called ‘border czar’ and Day No. 66 since her sole visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.  What can we say other than the fact that this woman is a complete loser?  It is what it is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border and across the United States as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for these frigging illegal alien losers for just this day: $519,850,464.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these maggots for this year: $264,629,485,568.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into our country just this frigging year: 2,712,240.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, we assure you, of the number of illegals roaming across the United States as we speak: 36,712,240.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  69. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Iran and Syria are proposing a mutually beneficial economic plan for the betterment of both nations seeing as the U.S. has imposed harsh sanctions on not only national leaders but the countries.   Eventually, we believe that Iran will spread across Iraq and into Syria to the Mediterranean where they most likely will establish a naval base.  Meanwhile, another member of the Axis of Evil- North Korea- is set to begin enriching plutonium yet again, giving the big, gnarly middle finger to the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has opened an air bridge into Kabul, Afghanistan, to get medical supplies into the hellhole nation.  Finally, “Kooky Kamala” Harris visiting Vietnam laid flowers at the monument commemorating the shootdown of then-U.S. Navy flier, John McCain.  WTF is wrong with this stupid woman?
  70. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As COVID-19 cases continue to surge thanks to the importation of millions of UNSCREENED illegal aliens and refugees, McDonalds’ restaurants and other similar fast-food outlets are closing down indoor dining.  Meanwhile, Texas and Florida are stressing antibody treatments over forcing everyone to get the increasingly ineffective vaccines.
  71. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, Democrat, is so upset with the harsh lockdowns destroying economic activity across the Silver State that he is switching to becoming a Republican.  That is correct, Mayor Lee blasted Governor Steve Sisolak, DS, and is now a member of the GOP.   In other harsh COVID-19 lockdown and restriction news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘Trump hatred’ is preventing potential COVID-19 drug research and development.’  Amen, Senator, amen.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education is pursuing five states that have mask bans in place in their schools.
  72. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.76 (2) AstraZeneca $58.61 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.66 (4) BioNTech $345.00 (5) Moderna $370.69.  The reason we share these figures is so that the public understands the reason for the push behind the vaccine craze.  Everyone in government is feeding from the hog trough, getting big, fat, rich, and horribly wealthy while everyone else starves in the street.  NOT flipping good for the American people.
  73. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.80 (2) General Dynamics: $199.19 (3) Boeing: $217.63 (4) Lockheed Martin: $362.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.62.  Folks, do you believe that the U.S. military is upset over leaving $85 billion of military equipment in Afghanistan?  Well, they most assuredly are NOT.  The reason for this is because the military industries will have to make more weapons of war for the military which means profits for these companies will continue to increase which means everyone in the Deep State and elected to government will be profiting from their stock dividends.  The classic money-go-round and the reason WHY the left hates President Donald J. Trump- he got in the way of their money.  God bless him.
  74. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that the U.S. ‘must either evacuated U.S. military abandoned in Afghanistan or bomb it.’ 
  75. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to 48-percent (which in the era of FAKE NEWS means they most likely are down around 29-percent.  Serves the usurper right).  Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden continues taking heat after the regime claimed it was taking intel from the Taliban to go after the plotters of last Thursday’s attack at HKIA in Kabul.  The world learned that the intel provided by the Taliban to the Bidenistas killed an Afghan interpreter and nine members of his family, including seven children.  Good Lord, Joe, you are a pathetic loser. 
  76. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– After Joe Biden and wife Jill met the returning slain U.S. military heroes from last Thursday’s terrorist attack at HKIA, Joe is taking incoming flak over him pushing up his cuff to look at his watch as the bodies were being brought in.  WTF is wrong with you, Joe, you can watch reruns of “Matlock” and “Colombo” anytime on TV.  Honor America’s slain military men and women you corrupt POS.  Newsmax reports that the dimwitted Joe Biden’s mindless comments are endangering Americans such as his recent bull crap, “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?  We went to Afghanistan with the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan as well as Osama bin Laden.”  Joe, you are a moron, zip your lips.
  77. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– FEMA Director Deanne Criswell says that ‘after Hurricane Ida, the biggest concern for the federal government is COVID-19-slammed hospitals.’  (Note- the other day when Joe Biden was at a press conference with Director Criswell, the old fool couldn’t even say her name properly.  This man is an embarrassment for the country as his Number Two, “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- we would be better off with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in the U.S. Naval Observatory, and that guy is a drooling moron).
  78. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell blasted Joe Biden’s hurried exit from Kabul by saying, ‘it’s worse than Saigon’ back in 1975.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that ‘words cannot describe the Afghan travesty.’   Worse, we learn today that U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was vacationing in the Hamptons when the debacle in Afghanistan began.  What a loser.  We learned today that various U.S. businesses around the nation are lobbying to bring about the implosion of the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill.’  Good.  The bill needs to go into the circular filing cabinet.
  79. 2021 Monday R: U.S. House of Representatives News I– One-hundred-and-three House Republicans are going to oppose any attempt by the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling yet again so the Dems can borrow billions and billions from communist China and other nations so they can fund ‘Joe Biden’s’ economic ‘plans.’  We wish you luck.
  80. 2021 Monday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers are down on their knees sniveling to the United States Supreme Court to STOP the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.
  81. 2021 Monday T: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Democrats are celebrating as word came of conservative radio talk show host Marc Bernier who has a radio program in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Mr. Bernier was opposed to forced vaccinations so the tragic fact that COVID-19 took him out has caused legions of left-wing losers to dance around the maypole in celebration.  F**k them.  (Note- whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice’?)  Meanwhile, Joseph P. Kennedy II- oldest son of slain Senator Robert F. Kennedy- is opposed to the release of his convicted assassin, Sirhan B. Sirhan, age 77.
  82. 2021 Monday: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Colonial Williamsburg to highlight gay and tranny reenactments.  Elsewhere, the former 20-year-old mistress of then-President John F. Kennedy, Democrat, is going to share her story with the press.  In other WOKE news, a new video came to light in which a skanky-looking California teacher was bragging how without an American flag in her classroom, she cajoled a student into pledging allegiance to the LGBTQIA+ Homo flag.  That teacher needs to be shot.  We must stop this WOKE devastation of the country.  If or when the Chi-Coms take the country over, all this WOKE crap will go out the window and these WOKIES will either get with the program or will join us in the labor/reeducation camps.
  83. 2021 Monday V: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #878 with a jackpot of $332 million up for grabs: 03, 15, 45, 51, 61, and Power 08.  Out of 58,654 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of 15,080 apiece.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: Unlike my colleagues, I do my best to avoid crossing the line into spitefulness because calling others foul names accomplishes nothing.  Still, there are things I find problematic with my party such as the Mar-a-Lago raid.  That is causing more people to cross over to the GOP which is going to have disastrous consequences for Dems come November.  We shall monitor the situation.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0937 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cove at Sundown.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release by the Beach Boys featured another archival release, a LIVE one from several top-quality shows from 1967: “Live Sunshine 1967” (12-08-2017).  For decades, if we wanted live Beach Boys shows from the group’s heyday- 1966 through 1979- we had to find vendors of bootlegs which was easy during the days of colored vinyl.  However, as time progressed, it became more difficult which is why we are so glad we are still alive half-a-century later.  We have two shows from Hawaii plus rehearsals, another from Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, White Plains, N.Y., and from other locales, all of which are a joy to behold.  We hope you find the necessary Joe Biden worthless greenbacks to pick up this amazing collection of concerts.  You will be extremely glad you did, that, we guarantee.

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We are still in the process of presenting the music so please, join us at WordPress.  We hope you will.

[iv]We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

[v] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

191. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JULY 10, 2022

1945 Tuesday: German U-Boat U-530 surfaces south of Buenos Aires, Argentina, a submarine that had gone missing after the German surrender. Many believe that high-ranking Nazis may have been aboard the vessel and will soon be sheltered by the Argentinians. Is Adolf Hitler among the passengers? This question will dog humanity for decades to come and will lead to several sightings of the fugitive Fuhrer.

  55. 2008 Thursday: The Chi-Coms claim to have foiled a jihadist plot from Xinjiang province that was to be carried out against the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics.  Wow.  You go, Chi-Coms, you go.  Anything to tar and feather the Uighurs.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice warns Tehran that it should have no doubts as to whether the U.S. will defend its allies…including Israel…from their terrorist attacks.
  56. 2009 Friday: General Motors completed an unusually quick exit from bankruptcy protection with promises of making money and building cars people would eagerly buy instead of models they don’t want.  Elsewhere, in Myanmar, after a six-week break, the trial of General Secretary Aung San Suu Kyi of the National League for Democracy resumes.  The military junta hates this brave woman.

  59. 2012 Tuesday: Always in search of new members (and to tweak the noses of the Catholics), the U.S. Episcopalian Church announces that its bishops have approved new rites for the blessings of gay marriages.  Oh, goody.  At one time, the gays said, “All we want is civil unions.”  Then, all of a sudden it was homosexual marriage.  They wanted nothing else.  We predict that within a decade they will pushing trannys, furries, pedophiles, and multiple-partner marriages.  You heard it here, first, and it’s all because these groups have LOTS of money which the Democrats covet.
  60. 2013 Wednesday: Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev appears for the first time in court since his arrest on April 19; he pleads guilty to 30 charges including using a weapon of mass destruction.   Elsewhere, famed Russian pro-democracy freedom fighter Alexei Navalny and Vladimir Putin’s worst nightmare registers to stand for the mayorship of Moscow in September’s elections.  Meanwhile, in communist China’s Sichuan province, a rain-triggered mudslide buries between 30 to 40 poor souls.
  61. 2014 Thursday: Labor unions of workers in the public sector went on strike across the U.K. to protest wage increases below the rate of inflation; unions claim that over one million workers participated.  Elsewhere, the BBC reports that Hamas trash circulating photos of ‘Israeli atrocities on innocent Palestinian denizens of the Gaza Strip’ are actually photos collected from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many of them as old as five years.  Once again, you see the depths to which, these scumbags will go to tarnish the reputations of the Israelis.  Shame on them.
  62. 2015 Friday: After a state law enacted its removal, the state of South Carolina removes the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds.  Many see the flag as racist and following the assault on the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that saw nine parishioners murdered by a white racist, the state had had enough.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of State blasts Thailand for its decision to deport a bunch of Uighur Muslims back to Xinjiang Province where the Chi-Coms are running amok in their persecutions of Muslims and other ethnic and religious minorities.

Walmart.  Elsewhere, the government of Iraq announces that the final positions of ISIS thugs in Mosul have been conquered and the scumbag jihadists either captured or killed.  Meanwhile, doctors in communist China report that Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo is in ‘grave, grave condition.’  Yup, most likely because YOU put him there.

  66. 2019 Wednesday: After cables between the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. and London suddenly appear in the news, cables in which, the British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Kim Darroch lambastes President Donald J. Trump for being ‘inept,’ among other things, the ambassador returns home in shame.  Speaking of the Brits, however, they have problems in the Persian Gulf as three IRGC swift boats attempt to commandeer a British oil tanker, the British Heritage.  However, a Royal Navy vessel, the HMS Montrose, warns the Iranian scum away from the tanker and thus they vacate as fast as their engines can propel them.  You should have sunk the maggots.
  67. 2020 Friday: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, aka CBP, reports that arrests of illegal aliens along the open parts of the U.S. southern border with Mexico were up 40% in June.  We say, “Build the wall and deport them all.”  Meanwhile average polling of the presidential matchup shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is leading President Donald J. Trump by 49.6% to 40.8%.  Finally, tropical storm Fay threatens to hammer New York City.   Perhaps if it slams the city, there won’t be as much violence this weekend as there was last week.

Trump commuted his sentence to time served which drove the insane leftists berserk.  Meanwhile, the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue says he won’t back down upon having been at the White House the day prior and complimented the president on a job well done.  Good for you!

[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.970.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Ivory Coast: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,506,094,235,480 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By the count of the AICPENDBLOG.COM, today is Day No. 109 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unfolding border calamity and her 15th day since her first and only visit to the border.  Has she done anything?  Nope.  We’ve seen nothing.  Meanwhile, One America News presented the daily cost of the illegal alien invasion as well as the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals.  Are you ready?  Here we go: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of invaders: $585,654,656.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, the addicted, wounded veterans, and Americans devastated by harsh Chi-Vi lockdowns?  It would be transformational.  Next, (2) Total Cost of caring for the detritus of the Third World this year: $208,804,888,576.  Moving on, (3) Estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,140,083.  Finally, (4) CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens running amok in the United States: 36,140,084.

Trump calls on Senate Republicans to stop negotiating on infrastructure.  Amen.  It’s a Trojan horse.   Elsewhere, in Charlottesville, Virginia, statues of Confederate icons Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are being removed today.  How sad.  Meanwhile, new reports suggest that female staffers on Capitol Hill are still lagging behind their male counterparts when it comes to salaries.  Democrats- aren’t YOU in charge?
  80. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– In other news, ramshackle Joe Biden continues taking flak over his plan to send the Joestapo door to door to check on people’s vaccination status.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that he cannot even remember the name of his own, hand-picked Health and Human Services secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra and one can see disaster unfolding.  Besides, Secretary Becerra is taking all kinds of heat for suggesting the government has the RIGHT TO KNOW the vaccine status of ALL U.S. citizens while not giving a flying f**k about the illegal aliens the administration is distributing around the country.
  81. 2021 Saturday I: Political News III– Illinois is becoming the first state to order teaching of Asian-American history to all students.  Oh, boy, do some chest-thumping there, Governor J.B. Pritzker!  In other news, fencing around Capitol Hill reportedly is coming down six months after the Democrats’ FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.   Elsewhere, a judge blocks Tennessee’s new law requiring public bathrooms to post notices regarding trannys entering them.  Now, the notices cannot appear as it’s somehow discriminatory against confused individuals believing themselves to be something they are NOT.  Finally, a growing number of Democrats are growing fearful that their party has become too WOKE.  (Note- you can add me to the list- Chef Bea O’Malley).

[xxiii] Our original blog began back in 2009 and by 2010- when we realized the Chi-Coms were spying on us at the Choseit.com blogsite, we went to Google in late summer 2010 and we estimated then that the numbers of illegal aliens in the country was then between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers of illegal aliens running amok in our great country is between 75-100 million.  What other country would not respond militarily to an invasion such as this?  We believe that we must lay in minefields along the entire southern border, that we must build anti-personnel, anti-vehicular, and anti-vessel traps, we also must lay in foo gas pits, barbed wire, seed the area with rattlesnakes and alligator pups, put in snipers to shoot the traffickers through their heads as they ply the waters of the Rio Grande.  We believe we must imprison every U.S. citizen caught helping illegal aliens for 20 years to start. We must heavily tax all monies flowing out of the U.S. at between 90-95-percent and we believe we must send employers and landlords to prison for helping illegal aliens.  It is rapidly becoming us or them.  -Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

Elsewhere, near Baquba, Iraq, a car bomb erupts in a marketplace blowing 22 people to meet with Allah way sooner than any of them planned while 53 are injured and most likely wishing they could have gone, too. Savages.

  65. 2011 Saturday: Christian radio broadcaster, Harold Camping, predicts that at 6:00 p.m. around the world, the Rapture for all Christians would begin.  We guess it did not!

  69. 2015 Thursday: After an oil pipeline burst two days previously, cleanup at Refugio Beach on the California coastline continues unabated.  Approximately 21,000 gallons flowed out to sea while another 105,000 gallons on the land.  
  70. 2016 Saturday: In the hinterlands of Afghanistan, a U.S. drone strike reportedly kills Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Muhammad Mansour.  Good riddance to a POS terrorist.   Meanwhile, longtime drummer with Megadeth[xii], American Nick Menza dies at age 51. 
  71. 2017 Sunday: In Nassau Colosseum in New York City, Barnum & Bailey Circus gives its final performance after 146 years.  They do this because of changing attitudes (people being corrupted by bleeding heart liberals sniveling and whining) and near-constant lawsuits by PETA goons and other animal rights activists.  What a shame. 
  72. 2018 Monday: In the western part of Iran, toadstools poison at least 800 people and kill at least 11.  Look, learn to tell the difference between noxious fungi and edible ones, dimwits.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama sign a multi-million-dollar deal with Netflix to produce programming.  Talk about buying influence!
  73. 2019 Tuesday: In Chef Vladimir Gdansk’s home state of Washington, the government there passes a law making the state the first one in the country to legalize HUMAN COMPOSTING.  WTF is wrong with Governor Jay Inslee and his band of crazed far-left liberal Democrats.  Might as well feed the deceased to the pigs.    
  74. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to communist China, another 2.5-million Americans file for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the total of unemployed Americans to 38 million or 14.7-percent of the workforce, a number not seen since the depths of the Great Depression.  Even worse, it all happened over the course of a single month.  Meanwhile, polls show President Trump’s approval ratings at 44-percent (take them with a grain of salt- or two!) and disapproval at 54-percent.  We shall see. 
  75. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the global statistics for the Chinese Virus- aka COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis- for today: 5,014,943 confirmed number of cases, 328,462 confirmed number of deaths, but 1,909,701 number of confirmed recoveries.   Here are the figures for the United States: 1,604,862 confirmed number of cases, 94,965 confirmed number of deaths, but 306,171 number of confirmed recoveries which is great.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, California first: 84,057 confirmed number of cases, 3,436 confirmed number of deaths, but typical of ultra-left-wing states, ZERO mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 643 confirmed number of cases, 17 confirmed number of deaths, but 578 number of confirmed recoveries which is extraordinary.  Finally, in the once-proud but now socialist-liberal hellhole, Washington, here are the stats: 18,971 confirmed number of cases, 1,037 confirmed number of deaths, but like California, no reported number of confirmed recoveries which tells you all you need to know about the regime running Olympia.
  76. 2020 Thursday B: As far as COVID-19 numbers go, communist China has changed their numbers somewhat.  Here are their current figures: 82,967 confirmed number of cases, 4,634 confirmed number of deaths, but 78,249 number of confirmed recoveries.   Sources in still-free Hong Kong report the number of cases to be well over one million, that the death toll approaches 750,000, with the number of recoveries being unclear.  Free Hong Kong!  Free Tibet!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan via making them a separate nation once again with their own seat in the United Nations.  Enough is enough with indulging the Chinese Communist Party, let’s return to the Two-China Policy!  It is interesting to note that Beijing is now trying to crack down on Hong Kong’s independence while the rest of the world is fighting Wuhan’s biowarfare.  We shall see.
  77. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 166,437,117 confirmed cases, +593,180, 3,456,597 confirmed deaths, +11,880 and 147,247,215 confirmed recoveries, +81,890.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,851,561 confirmed cases, UP 26,177 from yesterday’s reporting, 603,380 confirmed deaths, UP 628, [xiii] and 27,397,359 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,382.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xiv]   
  78. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,756 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 172,853 deaths  
  79. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,775,535 confirmed cases, 62,855 confirmed deaths, and 2,017,518 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,304,860 confirmed cases, 36,446 confirmed deaths, and 1,911,782 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,726 confirmed cases, 494 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 428,323 confirmed cases, 5,749 confirmed deaths, and 209,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Illinois: they have 2,373,453 confirmed cases, 24,935 confirmed deaths, and 2,275,243 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  80. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,290 confirmed cases, 6,397 confirmed deaths, and 832,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Algeria, a former part of the French Empire: 126,434 cases of the virus, 3,405 confirmed deaths and 88,066 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]   In other news related to the Chi-Coms (after all, they did give the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu on purpose), the FDA is warning everyone against using syringes manufactured in that country because they have a habit of breaking off in the arms of patients.  Yet another attack on the United States by the communist goons.   
  81. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,207.84, UP 123.69 points (+0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,470.99, DOWN 64.75 points (-0.48%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,155.86, DOWN 3.26 points (-0.078%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.88 per barrel, +0.30 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,881.80 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.66 per troy ounce, +0.17 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,170.90 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, +0.03 (+0.64%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,783.06 per troy oz, -68.97 (-2.42%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xix]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Afghan Afghani, one greenback equals 77.56 and in Albanian Lek, a buck equals 100.70 and in Algerian Dinar, one dollar equals 132.81 of theirs.[xx]     
  82. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.158 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.885 in Hawaii, and $3.558 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wyoming: $3.036.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.510 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,313,748,920,305 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  83. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day 60 of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ reign.  Where is she?  NO one has any “Kooky Kamala” sightings or information on this illusive member of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the tidal wave continues along the southern border with mostly young, military-aged males coming across, some of them decked out in new camouflage gear.  We are becoming the Roman Empire.  We cannot control our borders and we will come to regret it especially since we have an UNELECTED ‘administration’ in the White House.
  84. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden Regime News I–  The White House proposes lowering the proposed ‘infrastructure bill’ to $1.7 trillion in the hopes the GOP will bite.  Later in the day, the Republicans said, “Hell, no.”  Back to the old drawing board.  Next, the Biden regime says that there will be NO requirements for foreign visitors to show proof of Chi-Com virus vaccination.  However, we expect the Dems are going to continue pushing Americans to have ‘COVID-19 passports.’  (Note- how soon before the Bidenistas require everyone to undergo anal swabs like they do in communist China?)  Meanwhile, Joe Biden names a special envoy to North Korea.  Big whoop.  Our money’s on Bill Richardson.
  85. 2021 Friday H: Political News I– After a mysterious letter on the letterhead of the Capitol Hill Police Department, one written by an ANONYMOUS ‘member of the squad that admonished Republicans for their resistance to the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots- the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY- the Department said today the letter was ‘not them.’  (Note- Democrats always love ANONYMOUS postings so they can make it seem like there are many of them lurking in the shadows or that they are whistleblowers or worse, to tar and feather their opponents without having to take incoming.  We have seen this many times before and we will continue seeing it again- it’s what these cowards do).
  86. 2021 Friday I: Political News II– The FBI is investigating the discovery of SEVEN NOOSES dangling from the rafters at the site of an Amazon plant under construction.  The picture we saw of ONE noose did indeed appear to be a genuine noose and not the garage door draw-down that Bubba Watson was crying and sniveling about prior to a race.  We are sure they will track down the culprits and when they do it will be yet another FALSE FLAG OPERATION.  It almost always is.   Next, Governor Spencer Cox, R-UT, a backing a resolution to band the teaching of Critical Race Theory.   Good.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr says that ‘militantly secularist public schools’ have proven to be a disaster and that things must change.  Finally, even though Joe Biden abolished it, President Donald J. Trump’s 1776 Commission is meeting anyway.  Yet another sign that Joe Biden is going to be evicted from the White House soon.  
  87. 2021 Friday J: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1661 has a $515 million jackpot on the line for some lucky person or persons.  Here are the numbers: 06, 09, 17, 18, 48 and Mega 08.  Out of 247,392 winning tickets, the highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the MEGA for a prize of $6,665 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ record label decided now was the time to begin releasing repackaged ‘best of’ compilations.  “The Best of the Beach Boys” came out on July 05, 1966, with which to capitalize on the success of the “Pet Sounds,” seeing as how the times were indeed changing.  All the group’s earliest hits are available here- 12, in fact- such as “Surfin’ USA,” “Catch a Wave,” “Surfer Girl,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” “Little Honda,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “The Warmth of the Sun,” “Louie, Louie,” “Kiss Me Baby,” “You’re So Good to Me,” and “Wendy.”  We hope you will seek this album out and give it a good listen- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy for decades to come as it beats the hell out of modern-day crap music.

26. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2022, UPDATE A

Word has it that Chairman Xi asked President Putin to wait until AFTER the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. We have speculated that the war would begin either in the first week of January or during the Olympics because the Chi-Coms would have the world’s athletes as human shields.

  6. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.638 per gallon, $3.324 in Florida, $4.374 in Hawaii, and $3.957 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Rhode Island- $3.352.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 106th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Bulgaria: $5.157 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,879,414,685,795 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico catastrophe for 301 days and worse than that, she has not shown up to do the job in 215 days.  Shocking but not surprising for someone as unqualified as she is but still- the people of California are ecstatic to have made her the nation’s problem and no longer the Golden State’s.  By our calculations, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens as of today is $1,870,155,319.  Not good.  Next, the cost of caring for these ‘replacements’ for the past 371 days is about $406,403,028,712.  Next, over the course of the past 26 days, here is the estimated number of border crossers: 206,965.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals roaming the nation:  42,407,127.  Note- since the first inception of this blog back in 2009, we estimated at that time, the numbers of illegal trashing the country at between 35-50 million whereas now, we have revised that estimate upward of 85-125 million thanks to the incredible damage President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is doing to the country.  And they say the Replacement Theory does not exist.  Folks, it’s alive and well and at work as we speak.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II- At the invitation of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Republican, 12 other state attorneys general are going to come and tour the southern border disaster.  Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson presented video tonight with federal employees at an airport discussing the nightly drop-offs of passenger airliners filled with illegal aliens being transported from small airports into the surrounding areas in the dead of night.  This occurs every night, night after night, in many airports.  Illegals are being sown into the American patchwork to transform our country from one in which everyone wants to come to, to one everyone is going to want to flee.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- A sub variant of the mild Omicron strain of the COVID-19 virus has been detected in at least 20 U.S. states thus far.   Next, another of California’s embarrassments who now resides on the national stage- Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra- finds himself holding the short end of the stick- like Vice President Kamala Harris.  During the year in which, Joe Biden receives blame for being responsible for more COVID-19 deaths than his predecessor, everyone has noticed that Secretary Becerra- like U.S. Transportation Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg- has been missing in action.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $52.99 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.12 (3) Merck & Company: $79.14 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.34 (5) Novavax: $79.18 (6) BioNTech: $160.70 (7) Moderna: $154.96.

  12. 2022 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $31.78 (2) DuPont: $76.74 (3) Honeywell: $200.65 (4) 3M: $169.33 (5) Teijen: $1,444.00.
  13. 2022 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.80 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.46 (3) Beyond Meat: $60.18.
  14. 2022 Wednesday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $135.74 (2) Lowe’s: $228.27 (3) Home Depot: $357.06 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $483.47 (5) Amazon: $2,777.45.
  15. 2022 Wednesday N: Economic News- Over the past 26 days, product prices skyrocketed at the fastest pace in 25 years.  Thank you, Joe Biden.  Something else we are being told is going to skyrocket is the prices of toilet paper.  We are told to cut back on our consumption of the hygienic product.  What the f**k is going on in our country?
  16. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I- Despite America’s borders being overrun by millions of illegal aliens, President Joe Biden is considering deploying America’s fighting men-and-women overseas to protect the borders of Ukraine which, by the way, the Ukrainians say are under no threat at the moment.  Still, Joe Biden promised to dispatch written responses to Vladimir Putin’s concerns regarding NATO on his doorstep.[xi]   (Note- we are not that old and stupid to remember a time when Russia had observer status at NATO whereas now, three consecutive presidents have driven them into the embracing arms of the Chi-Coms).  Interestingly enough, as we are on the cusp of yet another unnecessary war- something Democrats and RINOs seemingly love- the U.S. Navy cut loose another 23 sailors for having not gotten the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.
  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I- Now that the Internal Revenue Service says that online access will require facial recognition software, the American people are growing concerned over the use of third-party software which most likely will send the collected data to the…uh, Chi-Coms?  Who does not see a problem with that?   U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was going to announce his retirement from the nation’s high court when he was ready but the White House rushed out an announcement so they could thump their WOKE chests by saying they are going to put a black woman on the court no matter her level of accomplishment.  We call this an ‘affirmative action hire.’  Good for you, Joe, good for you.  Racist from start to finish.   Still, the Dems’ strategy is to use Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s playbook and fast track the nomination of whomever the lucky affirmative action hire is so the GOP cannot do to her what they did to Brett Kavanaugh.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II- The Biden regime continues beating the kettle drums of war.  The U.S. Department of State is urging ALL U.S. citizens to leave Ukraine.  Now.  Or- if the Biden regime starts a war- leave before you are left behind.  Like Afghanistan.  Senator John Thune, R-SD, says that Vladimir Putin is ‘taking advantage of Joe Biden’s weaknesses.’  Amen.  President Donald J. Trump says that Joe Biden is ‘risking World War III’ in Ukraine.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News- After demanding Spotify either remove Joe Rogan’s money-making podcast or remove his music as a dumb-assed form of protest, Neil Young pulled his music from the streaming service.  Everyone LOVES Joe Rogan whereas Neil Young is becoming tiresome.  We love the old rockers, but we no longer give a f**k what they think or say.  Once Mick Jagger apologized for “Brown Sugar’s” lyrics and the Rolling Stones became WOKE and would no longer perform it, we lost interest.  This is what happens when one loses testosterone…
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3633 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 06, 07, 17, 31, 44, and Mega 12.  Out of 92,643 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,486 apiece.  The two tickets were sold at (1) Primm Valley Lotto in Nipton, CA 92364 and (2) Joe’s Liquor and Mini-Mart in Santa Clarita, CA 91387.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #942 with a jackpot of $91 million up for grabs: 04, 11, 38, 49, 69, and Power 16.  Out of 37,211 winning tickets, the highest winners in the Golden State was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $38,270.

[xi] Word has it that Chairman Xi asked President Putin to wait until AFTER the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We have speculated that the war would begin either in the first week of January or during the Olympics because the Chi-Coms would have the world’s athletes as human shields.  We expect that when World War III begins, Putin’s armored columns will burst across the border into the Ukraine, Chairman Xi’s ‘Mongol fleet’ will descend on Taiwan, Iran will commence crossing the Persian Gulf and overrunning the Arab kingdoms, Hezbollah and Hamas will begin attacking Israel, and Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea will begin acting the fool.  All the while, Joe will be sitting in the White House basement spanking the wank, eating ice cream, and gibbering to himself like the senile old coot that he is, and the world will be consumed by the new Axis.  We are going to LOSE.  None of this- we repeat- NONE of this would ever have occurred if President Donald J. Trump were still in the White House.  Period.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

355. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2021

2020 Monday: Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’ If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it. The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH. Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.

  48. 2009 Monday: President Barack Obama hailed a crucial early morning test vote in the Senate on his infamous health care ‘overhaul,’ in which, all 58 Democrats and two independents held together against unanimous Republican opposition.  Meanwhile, the Obama administration imposed a three-hour limit on how long airlines can keep passengers waiting inside planes delayed on the ground[xi].  
  49. 2010 Tuesday: President Barack Obama announces that he is going to sign an executive order that will permit the U.S. government to hold- indefinitely- dangerous POWs captured in the War on Terror.  Currently, there are at least 48 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that the country cannot release.  We say, “Hang them.”
  50. 2011 Wednesday: A wave of suicide bombings and violent attacks kills dozens and injures hundreds of others in Baghdad, Iraq.   Meanwhile, the U.S. is prepared to take responsibility for an attack earlier in the year that killed at least 24 Pakistani soldiers at a border crossing between their country and Afghanistan.
  51. 2012 Friday: Voters in Alexandria, Egypt clash during the evening of the second voting session over the highly charged constitutional referendum.  Elsewhere, Lee Dorman, bassist of the psychedelic rock bands Iron Butterfly[xii] and Captain Beyond[xiii] dies on this date in beautiful Laguna Niguel, California, at the age of 70.
  52. 2013 Saturday: Author J.K. Rowling announces she is producing a play based on the life of her character Harry Potter; the play tells the previously untold story of life before the boy wizard goes to Hogwarts; the play will premiere in London’s West End within the next two years.
  53. 2014 Sunday: The final film in the “Lord of the Rings/the Hobbit” franchise, “The Battle of the Five Armies,” grosses $90 million in the first five days of its release.  Expectations had been around $75 million.
  54. 2015 Monday: In the Afghan War, a suicide bombing against U.S. and Afghan troops near Bagram Air Base kills at least six American soldiers and wounds another six.  All across Afghanistan violent battles are occurring as the Taliban steps up its attacks on Coalition and Afghan forces.  
  55. 2016 Wednesday: The evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo in Syria continues as the United Nations announces it is going to establish a war crimes tribunal to punish those guilty of such crimes.  Good luck with that.   Elsewhere, Donald Trump announces he is going to nominate noted economist Peter Navarro to the White House National Trade Council.  Liberals go berserk because he is anti-China.  Not until 2020 would we learn just how many American politicians are in the back pockets of the Chi-Coms.  A shocking number.   President-elect Trump also chooses Carl Icahn- someone whom the left labels a ‘corporate raider’- as a special adviser on regulatory reform.  Of course, the leftists are upset…
  56. 2017 Thursday: Following President Donald J. Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the United Nations- always taking the sides of the Palestinians- lights him up- verbally.   Meanwhile, the Red Cross announces that cholera cases in war torn Yemen now total 1 million.  It is a humanitarian disaster.
  57. 2018 Friday: In Ecuador, law enforcement and military personnel get their man when they track down FARC thug- Walter Arizala- criminal and drug trafficker- and kill him in a gun battle.  The authorities sought the POS for the murders of two journalists earlier in the year.  Elsewhere, in the Czech Republic, a mining disaster occurs when a methane explosion in Karvina claims the lives of 11 Poles and 2 Czechs.
  58. 2019 Saturday:  While House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to hold her two articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump close to the vest, the White House thinks she is going to cave.   Meanwhile, RINO Republican former governor of Massachusetts says, ‘Republican senators will be voted out of office if they march in lockstep behind President Trump.’  Elsewhere, after a massive pile-up of 69 vehicles on a Virginia interstate highway, local officials close the road.  It is said that poor weather such as fog may have led to the mass collisions.  
  59. 2020 Monday: First, we learn that in Georgia, 1.3 million PLUS voters have early voted in the Peach State using the same corrupt Dominion Voting Systems machines with the same corrupt Democratic hacks running the run-off elections as ran the general election and with the same corrupt POS RINO Governor Brian Kemp and the same corrupt POS RINO Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger overseeing the process.  Do we expect either Senator Kelly Loeffler said to hold a 52-46 lead over communist NOI-loving scumbag Reverend Raphael Warnock or Senator David Perdue who is said to hold a 50-48 advantage over “Pro-China Jon” Ossoff to win?  We sure as heck don’t.   We expect fraud to win and to win BIG.
  60. 2020 Monday A: The NYPD caught 150 people early this morning at an illegal nightclub in the Big Apple.  Next, Utah RINO Senator Mitt Romney says, ‘the GOP has strayed from the importance of character.’  Mitt, STFU, please.  Meanwhile, Congress is said to have reached agreement on a $900 billion COVID-19 relief package for the American people which is purportedly close to where they started 2-3 months ago.  What is apparent is that neither House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer wanted to help the American people.  Shame on them.   U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says ‘$600 stimulus checks could be going out next week.’  Elsewhere, Congress agrees on a matter of significant importance: removing the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Statuary Hall.  Wow.  Our lives will be changed for the better!
  61. 2020 Monday B: The Trump administration cuts the size of the Arctic lands available to be auctioned off for natural gas development.   Elsewhere, Pope Francis promises Vatican employees that no one will lose his or her job due to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.   Speaking of the ‘Pope,’ he says- get this- that ‘vaccines made using aborted fetal tissue is ETHICAL.’  If there was ever reason to leave the Catholic Church, this is it.  The vicar of Christ no longer represents the Holy Trinity but has shown his hand as Satan’s minion by his allegiance to the DEEP CHURCH.  Time for the College of Cardinals to topple this Third World POS and to find a European to head the Church.
  62. 2020 Monday C: As Brexit begins to seem like it might actually happen, leftist Britons are scrambling to seek residence in Spain and Portugal.  Speaking of Great Britain, the U.S. says that ‘everything is on the table’ when it comes to enacting a travel ban on the UK due to the increasing cases of a new strain of the Chi-Vi.  People are sick all over Britain and sadly, there are some who are still naïve enough to believe that the Chi-Coms did not create this disease for use as BIOWARFARE against the globe.
  63. 2020 Monday D: Outgoing U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr lays out charges against the Libyan bombmaker whose handiwork brought down the Pan-Am flight over Lockerbie, Scotland, back in 1988.  The AG then says he has ‘no plans’ of appointing a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden and the Biden Family.  What a disappointment you are, sir.  Meanwhile, a House panel subpoenas HHS and CDC representatives to testify regarding their ‘lackluster response’ to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Seems like the administration did an excellent job.  
  64. 2020 Monday E: Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms attack President Donald J. Trump over his inference that they were behind the hacks and the spying.  Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says there’s ‘no doubt the Chi-Coms were involved.’  Of course, they were, it’s what they do.  Regarding the Chi-Com hacks, the U.S. Treasury Department says there are ‘no signs the communists caused any harm to the Treasury Department.’  Speaking of the CCP, we learn today that BIG TECH is launching an all-out blitz to influence the Biden administration into doing whatever it and their masters in Beijing want.   Proof of this is that the New York Times won’t touch the story of Chi-Com agent, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, the man who attacked President Trump but who was schlepping a Chi-Com intel agent for five-plus years.  Wow.
  65. 2020 Monday F: As for the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but still try to blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 77,188,346 confirmed cases, +656,621, 1,699,285, confirmed deaths, +9,360, and 43,522,242 confirmed recoveries (again, this number has been readjusted DOWN from a week ago-something strange is occurring), +342,299.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 18,083,146 confirmed cases, up 283,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 321,518 confirmed deaths, UP 3,019, and 8,000,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 142,452.
  66. 2020 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,910,120 confirmed cases, 22,820 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,291 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 227,122 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths (for some unknown reason, less than last week’s count), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Pennsylvania, currently, they have 569,413 confirmed cases, 14,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which seems to be the way of the world at present  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 374,760 confirmed cases, 3,099 confirmed deaths, and 348,107 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Mexico: they have 1,320,545 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 118,2020 confirmed deaths and 978,002 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Monday H: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,216.45, UP 37.40 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,742.52, DOWN 13.12 points (-0.10%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,694.92, DOWN 14.49 points (-0.39%).  Price of GOLD: $1,884.40 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.08%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.48 per troy oz., +0.096 (+0.36%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,012.60 per troy oz., -3.50 (-0.34%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,316.40 per troy oz., -55.60 (-2.34%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.58 per #, +0.0075 (+0.21%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $47.80, -0.17 (-0.35%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.95 Afghan Afghani.
  68. 2020 Monday I: Here is tonight’s Monday Night Football Matchup: (16) Pittsburgh Steelers, 17 (11-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals, 27 (3-10-1) Monday Night 5:15 P.M.  That’s right- NO mistake- the Bengals clobbered the Steelers with third-string quarterback Ryan Finley.  You go, kid, you go!
  69. 2020 Monday J: Here is where we were one year ago today: friends, stick around to discover what the Chi-Coms and their lackeys around the world are up to today- including the Democrats!  Also, we will share the scores of Monday Night Football’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals just as we will the stats for the Beijing Bat Flu.  Stick around.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

ENDNOTES:

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History Blog Post:   

Monday, December 21, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


[i] Modern-day Democrats claim this is the beginning of slavery and evil in the founding of America.  We say, “F**k them,” as they are- with the exception of our liberal, Democrat, or progressive members- are full of crap.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.

[v] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[vi] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[ix] This horrendous atrocity was committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[x] Once again, the atrocities committed in Mumbai were committed by members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Evildoers.

[xi] Thank you, President Obama, this rule was a long time in coming as passengers kept inside planes on the tarmac due to overcrowding of aircraft at an airport risked going to jail if they tried to give up their seats and get the hell off the airplane.  Still, three hours is a long time to sit immobilized but far better than having to sit 8-12 hours.

[xii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[xiii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

352. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021

69. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t. Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.

  72. 2020 Friday D: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 75,179,482 confirmed cases, +654,493, 1,667,124, confirmed deaths, +9,418, and 42,512,618 confirmed recoveries (interestingly down from a week ago), +318,734.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,401,776 confirmed cases, up 255,944 from yesterday’s reporting, 313,797 confirmed deaths, UP 1,711, and 7,777,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 12,256.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Chi-Com flu, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence received vaccinations for the Yellow Fever 2020 today.  Former Beatle Paul McCartney says he will get vaccinated.  Meanwhile, the FDA is working to get the Moderna vaccine into use while a poll reports that 71-percent of Democrats and 41-percent of Republicans must get the Wuhan Virus vaccine if one wants to return to work.

  75. 2020 Friday G: We learn that the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is trying to emplace new rules on AR-15 pistols, firearms that come with braces that strap to the shooter’s forearms, could soon have requirements demanding they be registered, dismantled, turned in to the government, or destroyed.  It’s like we always say: GO BUY YOUR GUNS NOW.  Then, find secure holding places for them because when government comes a-knocking on one’s door demanding your guns, ‘oh, gee, some illegal alien stole them yesterday and I was just about to report them.’  F**k the government if “Pro-China Joe” Biden begins running it and that moron of morons, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke comes looking for them.  We are telling you; people are going to get themselves shot.
  76. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1617 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 07, 15, 25, 51, 60, and Mega 05.  Out of 110,011 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,064 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are once again set out to make some money via remastering the works of Richard and Linda Thompson.  The resulting effort was “The Best of Richard and Linda Thompson: The Island Record Years” which is a nice repackaging of earlier works all nicely remastered and polished for new generations of fans.  While some loves of Richard Thompson may choose to overlook these years, they were wonderful what with her softer elements combined with his harder rock efforts.  We love the album and believe that all diehard fans as well as loads of new ones will, too.  Please, seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
